Does anyone have a good yum.conf for FC4? I'm specifically interested

Thanks. The fedorafaq.com yum.conf has not yet been updated for FC4.

Amarok is available with FC4 Base

To get mp3 support for it you need the gstreamer mp3 plugin:

## Enable the Livna RPM Repo ##
# cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
# wget http://pembo13.dalive.com/linux/livna.org.repo

## Install plugin ##
# yum install gstreamer-plugins-mp3

If you don't have amarok:

# yum install amarok


You'll want a lot more repos than that.

Start, of course, with base, updates-released, and extras. All are active by default in FC4.

Then add livna.

To this I added Michael A. Peters' JPackage and YJL repos, and another repo for Macromedia Flash.

If you want any more apps than these will provide, get the Smart Package Manager (http://www.smartpm.org/), learn how to configure it (don't forget to add a channel for "RPM Installed Packages" so that smart will know what you've got!), and then you can add the "Alternative Repos" (FreshRPMS, dag, and at-stable). Set them at lower "priority" and they won't break anything--while at the same time you have access to things that none of the others have. (Like a working version of MPlayer.)


Repo's isn't like a pissup... the more isn't necessarily merrier.... although suppose could describe as pissup in other ways, have too many and you will get sick ;)

The more repo's you want, the more conflicts and dependancy issues you will have - it is not a good idea to add every repo you can find.

Personally, base/updated-released/extras, then dag and freshrpms are very reliable I find. atrpms i usually fine, although wouldn't use for a server. Other than that wouldn't touch many others - especially not livna ( http://dag.wieers.com/home-made/apt/FAQ.php#D )
